Recognised surveyors

Operators should contact a recognised compass adjuster and check that they hold the appropriate recognition for the type of vessel to be surveyed.

Maritime Rule 45.6 and 45.19 outline what vessel types require installation, repair or adjustment of a magnetic compass, to be performed in consultation with an MNZ approved compass adjuster.

Compass adjusters can only gain approval and be issued recognition under requirements outlined in Maritime Rule 45.35.

Vessel owners must only consult with a recognised compass adjuster.
